People who claim to like the book version more than the movie version of anything disgust me. It’s usually the same weirdos that say they like United Kingdom’s version of “The Office” more than Steve Carell’s. People make these claims just to sound exclusive.  It is the same batch of hipsters who refuse to eat their rice with a fork, and insist on using chopsticks.  You can’t eat rice with chops sticks…it just isn’t practical.  It is also not practical to enjoy reading a fucking book over watching an epic movie. Do you know why The Passion of Christ did so well in the box office? Because it blows The Bible out of the water.

If I say to someone that I just saw a movie and loved it; replying back to me that “the book was much better“, is an inappropriate response. It’s like if a smoker asks a stranger for a lighter, and they respond “I don’t smoke”.  That wasn’t the question fucker.  I asked if you had a lighter, not a nicotine addiction.  To be honest you look like the type who would get-off on burning your ball hair – just lend me the lighter you use for that.

One Response to “Claiming You Like the Book more than the Movie does Not make you Hip”

  • Claims are statements about what is true or good or about what should be done or believed. Claims are potentially arguable. “A liberal arts education prepares students best” is a claim, while “I didn’t like the book” is not. The rest of the world can’t really dispute whether I liked the book or not, but they can argue about the benefits of liberal arts. “I thought the movie was cool” is not an arguable statement, but “the movie was Paul Newman’s best” is, for people can disagree and offer support for their different opinions.
